The NPA Plant Sale Story

In 1984, Barbara Flynn held the first NPA plant sale in her horse paddock. The sale migrated from there to the driveways and garages of members’ homes. Attendees brought plant donations and their lunches, shopping for a few hours and then enjoying the companionship of fellow plant lovers.

As the size of the sale grew, it moved in 1988 to a schoolyard in North Seattle—a friendly site, except when it rained. Along with the member-donated plants, there was choice stock from the NPA Border at the Bellevue Botanical Garden and from local vendors. With continued growth, the sale moved to Magnuson Park in 2000 to gain more space and a covered area, first using the old fire station for several years, then moving to a maintenance building.

In 2007, the sale was held in a hangar so large, it could hold all of our members shopping at the same time—but it was freezing cold and the restrooms were terrible! In 2008 we moved the sale to the comfort and convenience of North Seattle College, where it continues to be held today in the cafeteria and surrounding area.

Northwest Flower and Garden Show

  • 800 Convention Place Seattle, WA, 98104 United States

Come check out our display garden at this year's Northwest Flower and Garden Show at the Seattle Convention Center, February 17th-21st!  Our garden will feature a New-York-Themed Catio (Cat Patio), showcasing fun and functional ideas for creating a safe space for our furry friends in a small area.  Humans are of course welcome to enjoy the garden too, as long as they don't mind watching a live production of "Cat Pads! on Broadway", as our kitties strut across their very own Brooklyn Bridge Catwalk, bounce on Broadway, preen on 42nd street, and take in the sights of the South Street Pawport.   

The garden will showcase a custom-built wooden cat-containment fence designed to keep cats in without overly reducing visibility from a terrace or balcony, and will include a plethora of perches, eating, drinking and play areas for cats, and a custom catwalk designed to allow the cats to circumnavigate the entire garden from a high vantage point.  Perhaps most importantly, our plant material is specifically selected to be non-toxic to cats, and any irresistible plants with noted toxicity will be cleverly protected so they will be inaccessible to cats, but may be safely enjoyed by humans.

If you have cats, love cats, love New York, have a small balcony, terrace, or patio, or even if you are looking for tips to keep your neighbors' cats away from your favorite plants, you won't want to miss out on our fabulous kitty couture garden!

Still not sure?  Check out this great excerpt from our friends at Gardenmentors.com:

Ahead of opening day, we always map out our daily NW Flower & Garden Show musts. If you’re still not sure how you’ll spend your days at the show, here are our Top-10 musts for 2016.

    1. Fancy Fronds’ show garden entitled New York, New York. Cat Pads! on Broadway. If you haven’t seen a Fancy Fronds display at past shows, you’ve really missed out on some crazy-good fun.

      A bit of whimsy at Fancy Fronds’ Fronderosa Frolic 2015. There’s bound to be more fun in their 2016 NW Flower & Garden Show display garden!

      We got a little hint at their show garden ideas last summer at their ever-popular Fronderosa Frolic fern-y goodness fair, and we’ve been excited to see it ever since. If you share your garden with cats or would like to figure out how to bring your indoor cats outside, odds are this garden will give you some great ideas. Even pros like us get stumped by kitty-cat gardening challenges. So see you there to learn & laugh!
